Hello friends, this past week Michael and I started learning about space.
I put together this lapbook with lapbooklessons.com and also some resources from enchantedlearning.com. The cover is simply black construction paper and I drew the solar system with chalk. I used it as a teaching tool so I did the work. But I did have Michael color the phases of the moon cards.
We got the model for this paper rocket from Daniellesplace.com
The Astronaut idea came from Pinterest. Black construction paper with glitter stars. I printed out an enlarged photo, cut out Michael’s head, and he put it in the middle of a white circle. Super simple 🙂
Our favorite part of the week was the Oreo moons. We learned about the lunar cycle. These are actually generic Oreos but they taste the same. Yummm….
I thought I’d throw this in. I loved the Odd and Even game from:
Also, the book “Even Steven and Odd Todd” is highly recommended.
Like I said in a previous post…for Michael’s 2nd Christian birthday (celebrating when he was spiritually born again), we went to the Space and Science Center.
They have a nifty center with a replica of the Mars rovers.
There’s also a weather center with a green screen. Look Michael’s a hurricane lol!
Well, more space stuff next week.
God bless and remember the High King lives! ~Amber Dover
